I don't think I'd have nearly as much trouble making blog posts if only I could think of clever titles

But that is neither here nor there. It's #MusicMonday, and in honor of Jared Leto winning his first (and much-deserved) Oscar tonight (in addition to being named Prettiest by host Ellen Degeneres!), here is his band Thirty Seconds To Mars with a track off LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS that I don't think I've shared with you all yet, "Do or Die".

And in other news, we've had spring for two days this week. This pic was taken earlier today while we were under a winter weather advisory:

Sooooo.....we're going to have a 50-or-so-degree drop in temps in 24 hours. I don't know what that means for us, but probably just bitter cold misery for a day or two then annoying cold that lingers. But I hope not for too long! I was actually motivated to do stuff, and I'd like to - well, do my stuff. But when it's cold, the best I can manage is reading the blogs of people who HAVE done stuff and look at all their pictures while thinking "I could do this" amd wishing it had been me who had a nifty project to show off.


But I digress. Happy #MusicMonday! Happy return-of-Hart of Dixie day! Happy, happy season-premiere-of-Bates Motel day!



  1. Congrats to Jared Leto! :) Winter's on my mind too. Happy Music Monday to you.

  2. What a great feat it must be to win an Oscar! Congrats to such talent for sure. Have a rockin week girlfriend! Thanks for joining us.

  3. We are under a winter weather advisory, too. Last night we got lots and lots of rain. It is still raining, but that should move out this afternoon, but the temperatures are expected to drop into the low 20s tonight and that's where the real danger will be...I think. No doubt, we'll have black ice on the backstreets and DH will not be able to get out in the a.m. to go to work. I totally get what you're saying about reading other blogger's wonderful posts and think I can do that, but don't. Oh well... just do what you feel like I say and the rest will come. :D Thanks for sharing 30 Seconds to Mars ~ Do or Die on freebie week! Stay indoors, keep warm, and have a cup of hot chocolate.

  4. I liked it and congratulations to Jared Leto

    Have a oscartastic week and stay warm ;-)

  5. Great video - loved all the scenes and creative filming.. thanks for sharing!

  6. Great beat and congrats to him!

  7. I didn't get to see the Oscars but lots of chatter about it going on.

    And I am seriously rethinking wanting to live anywhere with snow! This island girl would freeze!

    Thanks for sharing this music.

    Have a blessed week!

  8. I love young Jared. He played a fabulous role in Chapter 27 and Mr.Nobody. This song really sweeps you along - powerfully alluring!

    WoW! That temperature change is wacky! But the sun is a true motivator and I voluntarily helped out the hubby with garden maintenance on Saturday. Put his blood pressure up mind you......!

  9. I squealed like a little girl when Jared Leto won last night! :) Our temps have been crazy here too - in the 60's yesterday then snow today! :( I'm with you - I am way more productive when the weather is pretty! Come on, spring!!

  10. I understand what that means. I'm home today from a snow day, but the top is still down on my convertible.
